Re: Help! I used too much lanolin!

There are directions on the ENI wool wash.... She makes it SO easy. Feel free to pm me anytime if you have questions.

Just hang in there!

Thanks SO much!

Ten kiddos...6 cloth diapered...this is the first time I have ever tried wool! I am trying to breathe!

They are sitting in hottish water...going out to dinner with DH for our anniversary. It will be better when we get home, I'm sure.

I roll mine in a towel before spinning out, I once felted a pair down one side of the leg (complete with bumps for the holes in the side of the washer) before I figured that out.

Better....I was doing 6 covers/shorties...4 look totally fine. The worst one still has some spots, but no clumps and they feel OK. Our "play" pair look the worst with lots of spots...but I can deal with that!

It took 4 rinse/soaks!

I ordered some ENI. Don't EVER want to go through that again!

Thanks again for your help!!

Oh no! I hope you can get it all out. Did you turn them inside out so that the spots are on the inside at least?

Wool is awesome but it is a lot of work hence why I'm not using it other than night time this summer. With 3 boys, sports and swimming I just can't handle any fancy laundry but I do miss it for sure!

I TOTALLY understand....I probably wouldn't be doing it either except that dd seems to only do natural fabrics well. Everything else leaves her red and bumpy.

I did turn my soakers inside out, but didn't the others. Next time it will ALL be that way.
